The Broncos seem to be an afterthought this season because they are in the same division with the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, who have been getting a lot of press this year. However, the team is just two seasons away from a Super Bowl victory and still has a good enough defense to get back to the Super Bowl this year. Below is a look at the current Denver Broncos playoff odds ahead of Super Bowl 52.
Denver got off to a 3-1 start, but they have lost two of their last three games, the latest loss coming at the hands of the injury depleted and previously winless New York Giants.
The Broncos’ current Super Bowl odds is 2500, which is a good value for a team with such a dominant defense. Denver currently gives up 19.4 points per game, which is 8th in the league. Their rushing defense is currently the best in the league, and have only given up 351 yards in five games.
Offensively, the Broncos are averaging 21.6 points per game, which is 17th in the league.
Quarterback Trevor Siemian, who suffered growing pains as a rookie last season, has been much improved this year. Siemian has 1,264 yards this season with 8 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He still needs to work on doing a better job protecting the ball, but he has been able to move the chains consistently this season, which was something he struggled with last year.
The Broncos are currently second in the AFC West, but they will have a difficult task getting into the playoffs because they have a brutal schedule ahead of them. Denver still has to play the Kansas City Chiefs twice, the New England Patriots, the Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles.
If they lose all those games, the best they can finish the season is 8-8, which means they will have to figure out a way to get some wins against a bunch of tough opponents if they want to make it back to the 2018 Super Bowl.
